Pool filter clean-up and pool filter replacement are thus an important part of the task of maintenance, and you should tend to them on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, too many pool owners today fail to realize the importance of pool filter maintenance. On this page, we shall examine clean-up and replacement separately.
We provide both services at Master Touch Pools.
There are three main types of swimming pool filters. There’re sand filter, diatomaceous earth filters and cartridge types filters.
Diatomaceous earth is a form of sedimentary rock that contains silicon dioxide and crumples easily into a fine white powder.
Cartridge pool filters, which can be linked together in a “daisy chain,” are widely used in cases where the discharge of water backwashed from a sand filter is not desired or where that water is to go into theaquifer,which is a watery area underground.
When apool filter clean-upis being performed, the pool pump should be turned off, and if the filter is located below the water level, the valves should be turned off so that the pool will not drain when it is removed.
You must also carefully take in where the filter is and the direction in which it is oriented so that you will know how to put it back in.
If even after you clean the cartridge, the flow of water is not as much as it should be, then you definitely need to replace it.
The same holds if the pleats of the cartridge are flattened or damaged, the fabric is fraying or the end caps are cracked.
At Master Touch Pools, we have replacements for any filter that you need replaced. If we don’t have your particular brand on hand, we can order one for you.
